customer feedback

1990 Nissan Skyline GTS-t

just wanted to formally thank you for spending the time to provide me with my car that has been diagnosed as one of the cleanest examples the complier has ever seen! Mind you, this is after i spent a week polishing and cleaning!

I am very satisfied with the outcome and happy with the result, on the 26th we'll see the inspector agrees :)

Nissan Skyline (V36 Series)

The 12th and latest generation in the series, the V36 coupe started production in October 2007 (sedan production began in November 2006) with the model proving very popular in Japan due to significant improvements over the V35 with a nearly 20% increase in power, improved safety and handling, greater luxury and modern styling.

The V36 Skyline is available in both coupe and sedan. All coupes feature the 3,700cc VQ37VHR engine producing 245kW (333hp) with a 7,500rpm redline. Sedans from 2009 onwards feature the 3,700cc power plant, 2006-2008 sedans came with the 3,500cc VQ35HR engine producing 232kW (315hp). Sedans are 5 speed tiptronic auto only, coupes come with a 5 speed tiptronic auto or 6 speed manual transmission, with paddle shift available on Type S and Type SP auto models. From 2009 onwards the coupe's tiptronic transmission was changed to a 7 speed auto.

The features vary between each model and options chosen when purchased but can include:

Steering wheel paddle shift controls with rev matched downshifts 18 or 19 inch wheels
4 Wheel Advanced Steering (4WAS) ABS brakes
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) Braking Assist (BA)
Stability and traction control Smart key
Leather interior Heated seats
Bluetooth phone connectivity Reversing and side parking cameras
6 airbags Active headrests
Emergency brake operated pre crash seatbelt tensioners Dual xenon headlights
Heated door mirrors 8 way power seats with driver memory
Dual zone climate control LED tail lights
Cruise control Sunroof
BOSE stereo system

Although based on the VQ35DE engine from the V35 Skyline and 350Z, the V36 is powered by a significantly improved VQ37VHR engine which produces more power (now up to 245kW... 40kW more than the V35) and more torque by means of increased displacement and VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) which combined with a twin intake setup now also produces significantly improved throttle response with a large power band from low rpm right up to redline.

The chassis is now stiffer than previous Skylines and handling has considerable improvements with the tiptronic auto featuring regular drive mode and sports mode, with driver selectable gear mode as well. The Type S and Type SP has steering wheel mounted paddle shift controls which blips the throttle to match rpm on downshifts.

Interior features have been improved with steering wheel audio and telephone controls, multi adjustable power seats and dual zone climate control. The car now produces lower emissions in accordance with world standards, is more fuel efficient, and is 95% recyclable.
